The protection of personal data and it’s processing by external staff

The protection of personal data and it’s processing by external staff Various companies gather large quantities of personal data in connection with their business, which are analyzed for the purposes of their business. The question arises, what happens with this personal data, or what is the company undertaking to adequately protect the personal data and prevent unauthorized people to access it? Usually the company itself protects the personal data it processes, but ever more often it happens that the company outsources another company, which is registered for such activities and meets the requirements as set out it the Personal Data Protection Act, to protect the personal data. In the Republic of Slovenia the legal framework for the protection of personal data is the Personal Data Protection Act, which entered into force in the year 1999 in it’s basic version (ZVOP) and was later substantially amended in 2007. Historically, the need for the protection of privacy has arisen because of various insults, attacks, eavesdropping and the like. The reason that this right was stipulated and enforced in legal systems so late is that the majority of modern violations of privacy, such as wiretapping, eavesdropping with microphones and electronic amplifiers, data collection, sharing and storing information with video cameras, computers etc., only became possible with the rise of new technologies. Before these were invented, an individual had reason to believe that nobody can eavesdrop on him in a private space.

Effective instrument against debtors

It is long known that executive legislation is written to favour debtors, a fact that they are skilfully exploiting. Debtors have become very rational in writing objections through the years. Objections, especially when they are drafted by the debtors themselves without the help of a legal expert, are usually very short, they are mostly focused on pretending a debt, any prepayments or any obstacles, why they haven't settled the debt, do not exist. At first glance it is obvious that such objections are thought up and filed only to stall the procedure. Case law now made an end to this. A position has been formed among the courts, that it is unjust, that a debtor can stall a judicial enforcement for several years using such "cheap tricks", which is why they made it possible for the creditors, to get temporary insurance by issuing preliminary injunctions. In practice, temporary insurance means that the debtors bank account is blocked for the enforced sum. In a time when credit ratings of individual companies are extremely important, a blocked bank account is an effective way to get debtors to consider, whether it is worth it, to stick to their absurd objection, if the creditor was already successful in blocking their bank account. Over 90 % of debtors (from our experience) are ready to make a deal with the creditor and repay their debts relatively quickly, once they receive a preliminary injunction.
